How Green are Exporters?

Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 2015, vol. 62, issue 3, 291-309

Abstract: type="main" xml:id="sjpe12075-abs-0001"> There is a well-established theoretical and empirical literature that shows that exporters are more innovative than otherwise equivalent non-exporters. In this article, we ask whether this is also true when it comes to the effects of adopting greener production techniques. Using an instrumental variables strategy based on UK firm level data, we find robust evidence that exporters are more likely to report their innovation as having a ‘high/very high’ environmental effect.
